The Avengers is the superhero movie of all superhero movies – it has humor, action, creepy alien invaders and a Stan Lee cameo. What more could a moviegoer want? What’s even better is that wedged between Tony Stark’s snark and a space Viking’s (or Norse god, whatever) quest for world domination, there are some life lessons to be found.

Try not to let family rivalry escalate

Especially when said rivalry is with your power-hungry brother, who happens to be hell bent on getting revenge and, well…approval. Ugh, that just sounds sad, but seriously – do not provoke someone if there’s even the slightest chance they may demolish a city, regardless of their motivation.

Be kind to those with anger management issues

Tough, angst-y guys may seem intimidating at first, but it’s not a bad idea to have them on your side. You never know when you’ll need a friend to help you out when some jerk is giving you trouble…

Always fight with style

In the middle of an explosive fight, keep your cool. And keep your hair and makeup looking flawless. Don’t let your foes spot any weaknesses.

Working together is better than flying solo

While it may seem easier to work alone sometimes, nothing beats the power of teamwork. Especially if you’re all wearing superhero costumes. Then you can achieve anything.

Sharing a good meal with friends can wipe away the stress of a long day’s work.

This applies even if your workday included a few near-death experiences, because Shawarma heals all wounds.

Clearly, we can learn a lot from The Avengers. The heroes overcame their differences to save the world from impending doom, and they did so while confidently wearing capes, spandex and metal suits. If that’s not admirable, I don’t know what is.
